"real world/road rules ruins." >> but it's funny, because we watch, you know -- i know, as an actor, you're supposed to hate reality television because, you know. but some of it's really fun. we watch it, and she'll be like, "oh, man." and i'm like, "what?" and she's like, "oh, they totally built that whole moment." and she has this really funny story that, when she was on the show, she was in the kitchen, like, making a ham sandwich one time. and one of the other guys on the show came in and he started, like, making a smoothie. and then, when they, like, cut the show together, they put, like, rage against the machine under it. and they, like, cut back and forth between their faces, it was like -- ♪ won't do what you tell me ♪ [ laughter ] and they created a scene where it looked like they wanted to kill each other and they were basically making brunch.

>> jimmy: 29. >> -- like, two mile-wide ships descend upon the major cities of the world. >> jimmy: to take over, world domination. >> well, they say they're here in peace. that's the cool kind of vibe about the show. is, a lot of times, you know, when we imagine alien arrivals, it's, like, buildings blowing up and little green men trying to kill us. in this one, they look human and they're really beautiful and they say, "we're actually here in peace and we want to help you live better lives and cure diseases." and all these amazing things. but pretty quickly it becomes clear that they might actually have a much more sort of -- >> jimmy: agenda. >> yeah, yeah, yeah. >> jimmy: and you play a newscaster -- [ laughter ] >> that was creepy. >> jimmy: yeah. [ laughter ] that was good, see? you play a newscaster. and they choose you to speak through. >> that's right. i play a guy named chad decker. >> jimmy: that's a great newscaster name. >> yes. >> jimmy: "hi, i'm chad decker." >> "chad decker." >> jimmy: "chad decker here with the news." >> and i get great, like, chad decker newsguy hair. which is sort of, like -- and it's great. he's, like, a really conflicted -- you know, i don't have, like, an evil, bad guy face. so, i don't get cast a bunch as the evil, bad guy.

[ laughter ] is that weird? i should've said that to taylor swift, right? [ laughter ] >> it made me feel really good. that felt really, really nice, yeah. >> jimmy: it was genuine. >> but, so, yes, so chad is a morally conflicted guy. he's super-ambitious. he gets the opportunity of a lifetime when the leader of the visitors pick him to do their first world-wide live interview, where the aliens are basically going to announce to humanity what their plans are. >> jimmy: what a break. >> it's a huge break. >> jimmy: what a break for a reporter, right? >> a big break. >> jimmy: "they aliens chose me to be the guy, this is awesome." >> it's -- but he's, like, a guy who might want to be in the spotlight so badly that he actually -- >> jimmy: will do anything. >> will do anything. makes compromises that might hurt a lot of people. >> jimmy: we have a clip from your show. do you want to set it up? >> sure, i mean, i sort of just did. >> jimmy: okay. >> yes. that was kind of the -- [ laughter ] yes. one of the pre-setups.
